. the department wouldn't say whether there had been a threat. earlier this month, the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya, was attacked and burned, and ambassador chris stevens and three other americans were killed. that attack took place amid violent protests that broke out over an internet movie that ridiculed islam. well, late today, the filmmaker, was arrested in los angeles. federal prosecutors say that by uploading the film on the internet, he violated the terms of his probation on a previous check fraud conviction. iowa kicked off the primary and caucus season. well, today it became th first battleground state to in the general election. at least 400,000 iowans are expected to vote before election day, november 6. in other battleground states, voting begins in colorado october 22, more than two million people are expected to cast early ballots there. in florida, balloting starts october 27 with more than four million early voters expected. john dickerson is in our washington bureau. he's our political director. and, john, i wonder what impact does all this early voting have on the campaigns
in benghazi. margaret brennan is here. good morning. where are we with respect to what the president and the secretary of state is saying with respect to the libyans and what they're saying with the death of the american ambassador? >> they're certainly not changing their message to the press, which is don't ask us to answer your questions. what's happening behind closed doors is the hunt for chemical weapons and the hunt for some of those loose weapons, particularly so called man pads, those shoulder mounted missiles that can take down airplanes. that is being put front and center. the u.s. has continued some of the security training, which is interesting, even though there are no americans in benghazi and they pulled back the staffing at the u.s. embassy in tripoli. they have continued some of their training in other locations outside of the country to help them security weapons. >> the president's not meeting with any world leaders. hillary clinton is doing all the work here this week. >> he was taping "the view" while she was cross town meeting with the head of rwanda and also me
